Brag about your kids thread

i don’t get it.

not that i particularly want to, either, so don’t worry about explaining anything to me. i’ll just be over here old-man-yells-at-sky-ing it up for the next two decades.

I let her make a sandwich.
She bites the bread because “a chef must taste everything”.
She isn’t strong enough to squeeze the mayonnaise.
It’s a mess of pastrami and shredded cheese.
She declares it beautiful, eats 1 bites, and puts it down.
Claims she now has ‘powers’.
Runs back and forth across our kitchen 10 times.
Runs to the living room also, but there’s a book on the floor.
So she sits down, starts reading.
20 minutes pass. I read and eat some of her sandwich.
A neighbor knocks. They found a package of ours that had been discarded after having been stolen from our porch.
I tell her what happened, she says “Wait a minute, someone ACTUALLY STOLE IT?”
I say “Yes! You know how…” but she’s already sitting on the floor reading her book.

We bribe our kids with an hour of delayed bedtime for every half hour they read during the summer, max of 3 hours delayed (so midnight).

My son has been reading for 2 hours today and doesn’t want to stop. Kind of reminds me of myself as a kid - only I didn’t have a tv or tablet as options, so reading was one of the few things I could do without going outside.
